STab (XTab) malware. How to remove?
In this guide we will help you to get rid of STab and XTab malicious folders from your computer. There can’t be both of these folders in your system, just one of them. These folders are malicious, because they’re parts of some nasty browser hijackers currently invading the majority of browsers today.
For example, STab and XTab may be installed together with WebsSearches, Omiga Plus or MyStartSearch browser hijackers. The only purpose of these malicious folders is to prevent you from removing these nasty browser hijackers from your computer.
For example, you will surely not be happy with mystartsearch.com to be placed in the home page of your browser. When you attempt to get rid of this hijacker from the home page and change it back to google.com, these XTab or STab folders will do their job – the browser hijacker will be restored. This is done by means of several malicious processes, which are contained in these folders.
